Nadiv, the young men’s giving circle of the United Jewish Federation’s Young Adult Division (YAD), is hosting its first-ever bracket challenge fundraiser during the 2019 Men’s Basketball Tournament.


And the top brackets are...

Thank you for donating and helping make our 1st Bracket Challenge a huge success! Over $1,000 was raised, which will support United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s annual campaign and Nadiv’s annual giving circle campaign, which aids children’s programming in our local Jewish community.


Winners will be contacted on how to redeem your prize.

Thank you to our sponsors
Calliott, Demeter, & Harrell Investment & Wealth Advisors and SL Nusbaum Realty for helping make this bracket challenge possible.


When the NCAA releases its 68-team bracket on March 17, a link will be sent to those who have already made their donation to access the bracket challenge. Donations made after March 17 will receive the link to access their bracket with the donation confirmation email. There is no limit to the number of bracket donations that can be made by one person, however each bracket requires a $10 donation. Winners will be announced via email and Facebook on April 8. In the event of a tie — gift card values will be evenly distributed. UJFT, YAD, Nadiv are using the ESPN bracket/bracket system with permission. All participants have an equal chance of being the top bracket.


100% of each donation will go to UJFT annual campaign and the Nadiv young men’s giving circle to benefit the Jewish community in Tidewater and throughout the world.
